Something that’s going to go away very quickly this week is the confusion some people have about Avengers: Infinity War and next year’s Avengers 4. Some people really believe that the Avengers movie coming out in twelve months is something completely separate from this year’s.
Speaking to Fandango, Kevin Feige confirms the two movies are directly connected and that Avengers 4 is the big finale to all of the MCU movies that came before it:
Fandango: If Infinity War is the end, is the beginning of next phase is going to be Avengers 4?
Feige: I don’t think it’s that. I think he next phase will be after Avengers 4.
Fandango: So Avengers 4 would be an interlude?
Feige: Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4 are very much of a piece. They’re very different movies and tonally they’re very different movies, which is why we did not want to say Part 1 and Part 2, but they’re very directly connected. Avengers 4 is the conclusion of all twenty-one movies before it.
There it is, Avengers 4 is going to be the epic finale to this era of the MCU. And it all starts this week with Infinity War.
